Corn and Black Bean Chili

With the sudden drop in temperature and the start of football season, I have been craving chili.  I have made a ton of chili recipes, but wanted to create one that emphasized corn and black beans.  The combination of corn and black beans just intrigues me.  So I went through my spice cabinet and started grabbing spices. After a few changes, I got the flavor that I was craving.  This chili ended up being one the tastiest that I have made.  The addition of the corn kernels added a nice texture and flavor.  You have to try this chili.
